welcome to HCM

once diagnosed to have TB - the recommendations are that you take the complete course of the medications - which varies from 6 to 12 months depending on where it is and how severe it has affected the person.
The swelling in the liver as you have mentioned need to be confirmed with blood tests which will test the functions of the liver

A possibility of incomplete treatment - recurrence of the same medical problem which can then affect the fallopian tubes.

I do understand that these are long term treatments and you can get upset and dejected.
Please feel reassured that by completing the course further damage can be prevented

hope to have answered your query

best wishes
